 Five youth, along with their team leader, and the support and encouragement of local Elders and professionals, tackle the cleanup of the stream that leads from the lake that is their water source, drains it, and helps keep it alive and clean. This video was produced as a community video training project, with the five youth as researchers, subjects and crew. GRYPHON media productions helps many community groups produce their own video through hands on learning.
